Stayed here 4 nights recently. Rooms neat and tidy. Good bed. Large walk in shower, toiletries and fluffy white towels. Ample wardrobe space. Air con and 2 ceiling fans. Self contained with fridge, hot plates, microwave, jug, toaster and plenty of utensils etc to cook a meal. Shopping centre within walking distance. Nice view and balcony from 2nd floor rooms....

I had to stay at Tannum Sands on business this week, Fantastic name but the place does not live up to the expectations you might have. Got back to my room one afternoon on the third day and had no TV working, was told by Manager "it's tuning day" and the TV's don't work, and then complained to me that... More

Loved staying here as it was handy to EVERYTHING!! Shops are within walking distance and you can see the ocean. The rooms were neat and clean and it was very welcoming. Loved having a kitchenette to do any meal. Would recommend this place and area to anyone.

I stay at this place regular and have always found the standard very high and the size of the rooms great, But like the others say here I found the staff vey difficuld to deal with and the smile has been lost in their sad lives. I will still reccommend this place to anyone and you will not walk away... More

Having stayed at the Reef Adventureland for many years after construction in the early 90's through to 97 it is pleasant to see that the propoerty has been maintained to near new standard over the past 20 years. The rooms are clean, comfortable and fresh - a far cry from properties of this age in the CQ and NQ regions.... More

We stopped off here on our way north and were impressed with the standard of the rooms and resort in general. They are spacious and in close location to the local pub which we had a great dinner at. As Gladstone accommodation can be so expensive - this is a great alternative.

The lady who runs the hotel is extremely unwelcoming, unfriendly and lacking in customer service skills. She was hostile to us from from the moment we walked in the door. I will never stay here again.

Because of the mining boom, Gladstone is one of the towns fairly well booked, and of course Managers can ask good prices, so we opted on trying Tannum Sands as this motel was a recommendation from a fellow traveller. The bedroom does have a wardrobe partly dividing it from the lounge and kitchen nook area, with the large bathroom off... More
